The small are mighty -- and mighty funny -- in Todd H. Doodler's cute chapter-book series about a nerdy fly taking on a predictably resilient bullying cockroach. Short, simple sentences, illustrations on every spread, and quickly moving chapters make SUPER FLY: THE WORLD’S SMALLEST SUPERHERO! a likely winner for very young readers.

Eugene; his sister, Elle; and his best friend, Fred, are kind and considerate and plenty heroic without the use of Eugene's invention. Kids will delight in the goofy, gross humor. This is a world where stale popcorn with spoiled butter is a treat. Charming black-and-white, cartoon-style artwork adds to the appeal.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
